Ok, maybe they lost all their matches at Wrestlemania, but does that totally mean the NWO has to disappear as a legimiate monster threat? Is there any kind of news at all about Steiner and other former NWO members being added? If something like this isn't going to happen, then what is? Have them totally go bye bye? It would seem that is the only other option really. And do you really think Hall and Nash would have agreed to come to the WWF if it was made clear to them that they would dominate for about a month and then drop into oblivion?
Lots of questions, likely no answers coming soon though, I fear.
The NWO does not really need Hogan. I just don't think the writers knew what kind of ovation Hogan would get at WM and Raw. So, they could be hot shooting this thing to get the NWO over as heels. They were almost booed out of the arena both nights, so they are seen as heels now instead of the cool heel group a week ago.
The NWO should be a little more young and getting rid of Hogan for X-Poc or HHH or HBK is a good idea. Granted none of those three are youngsters, but Hogan is far older compared to those guys. They need to be seen as someone who will be there for awhile and make life hell for the faces. If they are now recruiting guys for the NWO angle it maybe a good idea to add someone who is in the WWF right now like Angle, Christian or Booker T. They need to expand a little more than have their heads kicked in by an a good size face faction. It will be curious to see if they are intact after the draft or seperated. I would expect something to be added where if you pick one tag team member, you get the other person, but you lose your next pick. That way, Vince could say the Outsiders get Hall and Nash and pick up X-Poc later, because honestly would Flair want X-Poc?
A lot has changed on the shows since then. I don't know if there's anyway to tell how the audience reaction translates into things like buyrates or ratings or merchandise (does Booker even have any big merchandise items?
